Crisis In Dagbon

AFAG has observed the current happenings in the long running Abudu /Andani saga with shock and dismay. The ongoing row over the issue seems unending but more importantly is the lack of headway on the issue. Our position is that, if the trend continues this way, none of the two gates will be winners. The Abudus and Andanis will all be losers together with the nation.
AFAG appreciates that, some wounds are long to forget and to heal. This notwithstanding, our call is that, political parties who have used this sad scar as vote winning tool, should be ashamed of themselves and think of Ghana first. The youth and people of Dagbon have the right to peaceful environment, and freedom of movement.
We call on the youth of both gates to consider the interest of the larger society and their collective future as they embark on any vengeful action they would regret in later years. We call on them not to allow themselves to be exploited by unscrupulous personalities.
Furthermore, all political parties have the moral obligation to rein in on their supporters to bring stability and balance within the region in order to avert further bloodshed, disturbances and destruction of properties.
We urge the government to vigorously support the team of eminent chiefs in their efforts to chart a lasting road map towards peace in Dagbon.
The nation cannot afford to continue to lose lives and properties unnecessarily.
